EFSA considered the recent data to assess the occurrence of fluopyram residues in plants, processed commodities, rotational crops and livestock. A consumer risk assesment been carried out with derived proposals for MRL.
The metabolism of fluopyram in plant was investigated in primary and rotational crops. According to the results of the metabolism studies, the plant residue definition for enforcement can be proposed as ‘fluopyram’ and for risk assessment as ‘sum of fluopyram and fluopyram benzamide (M25), expressed as fluopyram’. These residue definitions are also applicable to processed commodities. Fully validated analytical methods are available for the enforcement of the proposed residue definition in all major matrices at the limit of quantification (LOQ) of 0.01 mg/kg. According to the EURLs, the LOQ of 0.01 mg/kg is achievable by using the QuEChERS method in routine analyses.
